I would think about investing in a carb re-build kit.

Take one of the plugs out and hold it against the head while the engine cranks. You should get decent spark. If not, you have an ignition problem. If it gets decent spark, try spraying some starting fluid into the air cleaner box. If the engine starts up and runs for a couple seconds, you have a fuel delivery problem.

Probabilly a stuk carburettor float or needle.
Try to solve this problem to gently tap on the carburettor bodies. If this doesn't help you have to clean out the carburettors, and/or replace the float neeldes

SOURCE: 05 katana start button wont start bike but bike

Well sounds like start button is not in contact or stuck, if you can open the 2 screws holding the switch box together on handle bar then do so, and make sure the contact spring pushes the button out and releasing the contact switch otherwise you'll burn your starter motor. Good enough?

SOURCE: Fuel leaking from air box after shutting down

Hi
Thats the float valve seals not shutting off, did you clean them & set the float heights?
The overflows from the carb bottoms must also be blocked for the fuel to fill up the carbs which then leaks into the air filter
Check also that the fuel tap turns off when bike is not running

Ride Safe

1989 Suzuki GSX 750 F that won't idle below 3000 rpm


Hi, Suzuki #5 is jumping up and down waving the Suzuki flag screaming "pick me pick me" and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables improperly adjusted, pinched or need lubrication.
2. Idle adjusting screw needs to be backed off.
4. Air fuel mixture adjusted too lean start with 2 full turns.
5. Intake system air leak, check intake boots with propane
6. Fast idle choke ramp is not releasing.
7. Broken throttle return spring.
8. Damaged diaphragm or slide.
9. Faulty MAP, TPS, ATS, O2, sensors or wiring/connector.
10. Multiple carburetors not in sync.

My gsx600 katana. donT WANT TO START. SEEMS LIKE THE GAS DONT GET IN TO OR GET IN TOO MUCH AND DONT LET IT START IT, WHAT IT CAN BE?


If the bike has been sitting for any period of time, maybe 6 months or more, the carbs and fuel system probably needs cleaning. Remove the carbs and have them cleaned or take the bike in for a complete fuel systems servicing. Carb cleaning can be rather detailed and should be left for the professionals unless one has experience.

1998 Katana 600 leaking fuel


Sometimes you can have success by tapping, fairly stoutly, on each float bowl.
The problem with anything else, is the carbs really need to be removed, and examined. It is the putting back on that is critical. The carbs need to be balanced. That is one reason to have a shop do it, if you're not familiar with the process.

Try the banging, and after inspect to be certain each carb is not flooding.

1993 750 katana i get a gasoline odor after riding for a while it stays until iwash the bike the smell even gets on my jeans


Well that cant be good.
Do you notice any puddles or smell of fuel when the bike is sitting?
Is it on just one leg of your jeans or both?
Do you have the stock air filter installed?

I would look for leaks in the seam of the tank or leaks in the fuel pipes that run between the carbs or a leak in the petcock/ fuel line. Its gotta be leaking somewhere, or its shooting fuel out the throat of the carb when its running which could indicate valve problems.

Take the fairings off so you can see and let the bike sit and run at idle. With a battery powered flashlight check the bike over closely until you find the leak. Wipe everything off dry and check again so you are sure where it is coming from. Then ( with the air box removed) rev the motor while looking with the flashlight and see if ti shoots fuel out one of the carb throats. Dry everything off and double check again.

My 05 gsxr wont start


Check for spark first of all. If no spark, is the kill switch on? Is the side stand up? It should be up when starting. Is the bike in neutral? Check the fuses.

If spark is present, is the gas turned on? How clean is the air filter?
If the bike still will not start go ahead and drain the carbs. If your bike has a water trap bowl behind the gas valve then remove the bowl, clean and reinstall it.

Doing this should get you back on the road.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Fuel dumping


Sounds like a vacum issue with the tank, try starting the bike with the filler open, when you shut the bike off of no more fuel leaking then you may have a vacum issue with the tank. I have seen cases where the vent tube in the tank is clooged and it wont allow the fuel to return to the tank properly.

05 suzuki katana 750 idle issues


Idle issues can be fuel/air (mixture ratio) or igition (spark strength). It sounds like an air restriction issue. If there is no blockage throught the air inake/filter, make sure you adjust the jets to specifications and make sure there are no float issues with the carbs.
